Iv'e been on the forum a few weeks now and have been gobsmacked at the standard of modelling
i have seen.......so it is with a little trepidation that i present my own humble offerings....

The layout was constructed as a testbed to try finescale track,electrofrog points,electromagnets,
and DCC...(NCE Powercab).My only other attempt at railway modelling was an oval of track with a siding that got no
further than laying the track and two wires for power.
The layout is 4ft long and 10" wide, with the scenic section being 32" long.
It was not built with any era,location or prototype in mind just something i could learn different skills from without getting
bogged down in a large project.Operationally it is quite limited but it satisfies me when i have 10 mins to spare when i can run in a few DMU's or shuffle a few wagons about.There is still a lot of detailing work to be done but i am about to start a new project so this will be ongoing.I never really thought about a name for it so i have called it Smithy Lane in memory of my Dad.
.......Thank's for looking.....:thumbs

Ste, a lot can be done with N scale as many YMRers can testify too - very good indeed.

Agreed - thats a very nice bit of modelling .

The track weathering is excellent and I like the bridge

What is the bridge ? Is it off the shelf or made ?

Hi Dock shunter,
A really nice cameo, and it looks aw-some I especially like your greenery, it looks so real you should give yourself a pat on the back for a job very well done

Hear Hear! Some really top work gone into that lot.Looking at it on your DG couplings demo,I thought it was a complete layout and you were just showing us a section.Can't wait to see you you get stuck into a full-blown layout.You've certainly mastered all the skills on this module.
:cheers

That's beautiful Ste. :thumbs

It may be small but it's certainly perfectly formed. :pathead:pathead

The backscene has already drawn comment and I'll add to that - it's look absolutely real the way you've blended it in with careful placement of greenery.

I'd be extremely happy to call that layout my own and leave the humbling to others far less accomplished. :cheers:cheers:cheers

The way the backscene is melded into the front of the layout is particularly good.

Thanks for your kind observations PeterMac...........
Because the scenic section is so small i have tried to incorporate a lot of
horizontal lines in the long wall,fencing and footpath to try and give the illusion that it is
longer than it actually is.I think this also helps make it easy on the eye to look at.
I have learned so much from building this small layout and with the confidence gained from
so many favourable comments i am really looking forward to starting my next project...


                                 Thank you ALL again......:cheers

I was quite surprised to learn this was 2mm scale, at first glance i would think 4mm scale at least.
Nice little layout that should find it's way onto the exhibition circuit.

That's some very neat and tidy ballasting, especially in N gauge. And overall the layout is a nice consistant standard ready for the detailing work you're planning on doing.

A delightful little scene Ste and one which might not need a lot of details added for a rural by-way. As for a "humble effort" you're not the first here to introduce your layout with those words and yours stands among the rest of them here as a worthy and convincing little project. Good work.

Please also refer to the header nominations thread.

Excellent, enjoyed the pictures and looking forward to more. There is no doubt that accomplished modellers like yourself make 'N' very appealing.

It is very rewarding that so many fine modellers have taken the time to look at my
small layout and make such appreciative comments...thank you all....:thumbs

I love that picture of the DMU passing the signal box at the top of the 1st page. This is a super little layout that looks very natural indeed.

My favourite also Bob and why I have chosen it for one of the side panel photographs this time round. Way beyond my capabilities in N gauge.

Great looking layout! :thumbs

I am also thinking of doing an N guage layout,

Your layout has given me some great ideas for a branch line station. 

I am also doing a similar era my layout.

Thanks chaps for all the kind words about Smithy Lane........:thumbs
2012 was a year to forget for me,being unwell for large parts of it and not being able to do any modelling i lost touch with this wonderful forum.
I asked Bob if i could come back in September and started to post again,but then i lost my Mum and modelling etc had to take a back seat again.
Well i have recently moved into a brand new flat and am lucky enough to have a whole room for a layout,but i still have one or two micro layouts to exorcise out me 'ed.Hopefully i can share them with the good folks here at YRM.

As for Smithy Lane,i have added a few bits and bobs to it and here are a few pics.........thanks for looking..............Ste.

Hi Ste
Hope you are recovering from your sad losses and that the deserved praise is raising your spirits.
That canopy, I have no idea where you copied the original from but I'm convinced it has been re-erected in one of the car parks in Glastonbury. Saw it last year on me 'olls but as a tram man I never thought to take a picture.

Carry on with the exorcism and let's see the results. In fact you may be able to come up with other sections of the branch and have them attachable to create a longer and variable layout.
"Smithy's  End, Smithy's Top and Smithy's Bottom.
AH!:oops: perhaps not the last one.

Regards
Jim

Thanks for your kind words Jim and John.:thumbs
The canopy is actually a Ratio Kit.
If the one in Glastonbury is actually from a railway station it would be interesting to know where it came from.
Working/exorcizing...:mrgreen: on a few things at the moment and will post pics when i get past the boring stage....Track/Wiring.

Hi Ste
There was an explanatory plaque on it and it is apparently a genuine GWR job from the branch line (Bloody Beeching again) which was saved and put up as a shelter and still performs it's original function very well. Mind you the cars under it are covered in Swallow s..pit.


The stand and board have the explanation.
You can see it on Google Earth. Go to 51Deg 08'54.18" N and 2Deg 43'01.66" W then drop down until you hit street view then you can have a snoop around.

Regard
Jim

Edit. I should have said, there is a local museum in Glastonbury and the library is very helpful. Might be worth a try.

Edited Edit, Turns out it was on the Everceech branch of the Somerset & Dorset Joint Railway so not GWR but closely related.
Jim

The best way to get back into modelling is just like that, something not too big or complicated to practice your skills on.
What's next, some telegraph poles or signals?

Cheers

Thanks Marty......:thumbs
Building Smithy lane has been just that,a little thing to learn and practice skills on.
Telegraph poles is a great idea,i have some in my bits box,will do a little research to see if they are suitable.
Signaling is something i must admit i know nothing about.
The layout seems to have taken on a GWR/Western theme although this was not intentional, so i am wondering if the new signals offered by Dapol might be appropriate.

Hey Jim.....:thumbs
Thanks for taking the time to post that bit of info.....very interesting.
Great to see a relic of the old railway still in such good condition and still in use,although its original use would have been better.
Going back a few years i would normally be in Glastonbury at this time of year, (summer solstice,and the festival).
Beautiful part of the country.:thumbs

I really like the natural way the layout blends into the backscene. Well done. There is certainly food for thought there. I really like it.

Indeed, it is a very well presented layout.

It's also got me thinking, which is dangerous. To have the layout 4' long including the fiddle yard is an interesting prospect.

I must resist! I have enough layouts ongoing now as it is!
